SEANSE

This study, conducted within the SEANSE project, is a test of the CEAF modelling tool (Common Environmental Assessment Framework) to quantitatively assess cumulative impacts of piling for offshore wind farm construction on the harbour porpoise pop

SEANSE

This study, conducted within the SEANSE project, is a test of the CEAF modelling tool (Common Environmental Assessment Framework) that reports calculations on the cumulative collision and mortality displacement incidence of four seabird species (R

SEANSE

This study, conducted within the SEANSE project, provides an overview of the similarities and differences between North Sea countries regarding current SEA (Strategic Environmental Assessment) and EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) contents wit

SIMCelt

This case study was developed as part of the SIMCelt project to complement three other case studies which explored how transboundary interaction is approached in the Celtic Seas.

Dutch MSP process

This practice shows how safety distances can be calculated between areas used for shipping and offshore wind farms.

NLR - Netherlands Aerospace Centre

Offshore wind farms in the North Sea are being built close to gas and oil platforms. These platforms get visited regularly by helicopters with the goal to pick up staff members or to deliver supplies.

RVO and TKI Wind op Zee

Offshore wind energy is one of the renewable energy sources for the Netherlands with large potential. Currently the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) of offshore wind energy is much higher than the market price of energy.

Rijkswaterstaat

This practice analyses the effects and scoial costs of pile driving for offshore wind farms, seismatic research and shipping on underwater noice and the consequences for mammel behaviour.

MARMONI

This guidance document has been created for the Baltic Sea Region, which would specifically target the impacts of offshore wind farms on biodiversity in the more Northern parts of the Baltic Sea (marine areas of Sweden, Finland, Estonia and Latvia

Ministry of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda of Spain

The study contributes to the design of potential projects of marine wind farms. There is a variety of effects and conflicts related to the location of these of these wind farms and the involvement and coordination of the different administrations and stakeholders concerned.

UK Government - Department of Energy & CLimate Change

The UK Government developed a draft plan/programme for Offshore Energy in the UK. To analyse the environmental consequences a SEA (Strategic Environmental Assessment) has been undertaken.

UK - Scotland

This report describes the process employed by Marine Scotland to identify strategic search areas for future commercial scale offshore wind developments in Scottish Territorial Waters (STW).
